At Kaha, we pride ourselves in providing our customers with the highest quality telemetry solution as well as continual support throughout all stages of the customer’s Kaha experience. Kaha Sciences Ltd manufactures, promotes and sells telemetry solutions for small animals, using the latest technologies in physiological sensors and wireless power. The Kaha Sciences telemetry products have been around for over 10 years and have been extensively used globally in academic and research institutions as well as biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. The patented wireless power technology along with a Mikro-Tip catheter (Millar Inc.) containing the solid-state sensor at the catheter tip, was the first product of its type. This provides customers with the ability and confidence to measure long-term, highly accurate and sensitive recordings from intracardiac through to intracranial pressures. The product range has grown to include specific and unique devices such as tissue oxygen and SNA/Pressure telemeters.
The Kaha Sciences Rat Telemetry System sets the new standard in implantable, wireless telemetry to measure high-fidelity, physiological signals from rats >175g. The system allows measurement of true high-fidelity signals such as ventricular and arterial pressures, sympathetic nerve activity (SNA), biopotentials (e.g. ECG, EMG & EEG) and tissue oxygen.
The rat telemetry system enables researchers to collect high quality data in cardiovascular, safety pharmacology and toxicology studies. Data can be recorded for long periods of time and under conditions free from anesthesia or restraint. Additional benefits include reduced animal handling induced stress and reduced lab maintenance.
The Cohousing feature allows two telemeter implanted rats to be housed in a single cage or one larger rat (>350g) to be implanted with two telemeters, increasing the number of signals that can be recorded.
The complete system includes the Telemeter, SmartPad and Configurator and integrates with any data acquisition system with analog inputs.
Telemetry System Benefits
- Replaces tethers, wires and cables
- Allows long-term recordings
- Enables monitoring in unrestrained environments
- Reduces stress artifacts induced by animal handling
- Allows animals to be used sequentially as their own controls or for multiple studies
- Allows 24/7 recording of continuous measurements
- Reduces the number of animals required
- Reduces animal maintenance costs
Advanced Telemetry Technology
Digital data transmission, wireless inductive power supply and battery backup enable 24/7 digital data collection from telemeters implanted in freely moving, conscious animals living in their home cages.
Kaha Sciences Mouse Telemetry System enables measurement of biopotential (ECG, EEG or EMG) signals in long-term studies. Single-use telemeters bring affordability and efficiency to wireless monitoring and eliminate the need to explant, clean or refurbish. Minimize downtime between studies and make more time for data analysis and publication.
Kaha Sciences mouse telemetry is ideal for high-volume studies that require high-quality biopotential data. It can be used with mice, >22 g, living in their home cages and is compatible with any data acquisition and analysis systems.

Get more from your telemetry data
Digital data transmission and a sampling rate of up to 2 kHz provide unmatched data quality and a higher temporal resolution. Accurately measure parameters that are traditionally restricted to acute or tethered experiments from animals living in their home cages. Use the index of animal activity to help interpret data and refine research protocols.
